TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Green House Peru Sacred Valley
The Green House is really special. Kelly welcomed us into her home and cooked delicious dinners each evening, which we enjoyed with the other guests while sharing our travelling tales. Our room was very comfortable overlooking a beautiful garden with a backdrop of mountains, but it was the special touches that made our stay memorable like being able to curl up with a blanket round the fire in the lounge in the evening and going to bed to find it warmed with a hot water bottle.
It was a perfect location to explore and we found it easy to get about by local buses to visit Moray, Salinas and Pisac.

The Urabamba kept us company as we drove into the upper part of the Sacred Valley. The countryside changed completely, with far more arable land, and trees.

Ollantaytambo (inhabited since the 13th Century) is a pretty village with cobblestone streets, a market and little cafés from which you can watch the world go by. It is dominated by Inca ruins with huge, steep terraces (an extremely hard climb in the heat). Felt a bit giddy standing on the top looking down (no barriers).
It was then time to catch the train to Aguas Calienates where we ...
... old woman was making something. Our guide explained to us that he had brought us into a Chicaria, where they brew corn beer. You can recognize a Chicaria from the red flag that hangs outside the door. This particular woman had owned this Chicaria for years. They use yellow and red corn to make corn beer and we only got to try a little bit because if you're not used to it, it can be very bad for your stomach. Our guide then taught us how to okay a Peruvian drinking game. There ...
... of a break from technology, and it's been good, but I miss y'all. I can't wait to be back and tell you all about it, but until then I'll give you my latest update.
Yesterday, I made it to Machu Picchu. The vast, glorious ancient city Machu Picchu is everything that it is cracked up to be, and it shows. The place is swarming with tourists, which is a little unsettling for a guy such as myself. However, I was at a ...
